shout-outs, for example, to reverend jeremiah wright, some other small nuggets that the daily caller thought were exclusive. >> tell you what, i want you to highlight the jeremiah wright issue as well because there were some serious comments made about the reverend jeremiah wright, and when you say shout-out, it was a heck of a shout-out. i mean, my friend, my colleague, my mentor, my -- all sorts of lawedible comments about jeremiah wright, and then the next year, no more jeremiah wright. >> right. yeah, well, also, remember that when he was making that shout-out to jeremiah wright, it wasn't until sometime much later that jeremiah wright really became an issuend sort of blew up and was heavily covered in the media. now, to be honest with you, some democratic strategists will conclude and have said, this isn't that flattering to then senator obama, having his words like this dissected, not flattering at all, but as a political matter, the sense among democrats i've talked to is they believe this is not likely to have that big an impact on the obama campaign, and one strategist said

then was senator obama's praise for his controversial pastor jeremiah wright. the additional comments what about he called disparity in the way new orleans got federal assistance after katrina and his charge that that was because of race. >> there is a law, federal law when you get reconstruction money from the federal government called the stafford act. basically it says when you get federal money you have to give a 10% match, local government has to come up with 10%. every $10 federal government comes up with, local government has to give $1. now here is the thing. when 9/11 happened in new york city, they waived the stafford act and said this is too serious a problemch we can't expect new york city to rebuild on its own. forget that dollar you have to put in. here is $10. that was the right thing to d do. when hurricane andrew struck in florida, people said look at this devastation. we don't expect you to come up with your own money here. here is the money to rebuild. we're in the going to wait for you to scratch it together. because you're part of american family. what is happening in new orlea

obama was a candidate with the jeremiah wright stuff. it's doubling down on incredibly divisive racialized brand of politics that doesn't serve the republicans well this election cycle but really does not serve them well in the long term. this party, i don't see what the future of the republican party is if these are the spokes people, the newt gingrich, the donald trumps of the world. >> you know, gene, it didn't start here, of course. there was an attempt, nixon what he would say about adlai stevenson in the '50s, the red scare was used obviously. they weren't one of us. bill clinton was accused of sneaking off to russia, remember that, back when he ran. he was some sort of red. mike dukakis was a guy that wouldn't pledge allegiance to the united states, somehow a card-carrying member of the aclu. all this dark, kind of referencing. they're not really one of us. but then with the ethnic factor, because he has the african name and he's black, the doubling down on this, well, he's not one of us. >> right. race adds to this, to the armament they're using here. it's a huge factor

to this issue that we went through four years ago in the 2008 campaign about reverend jeremiah wright from trinity church in chicago, and here's the penalty now this is before the videos came out this is before the videos came out. the president hadn't seen the videos. how would you talk about your pastor? he was being very complimentary. the republicans are trying to take us back to where we were in 2008, which is just ridiculous. we hashed this out. the guy's been president for four years he has a record to run on. you want to criticize the record, go ahead. but to take us back to this controversy, peter this is just ridiculous. >> i was tuning in and i had a thought, back in the last election we heard rumors that there was the infamous whitey tape that either barack obama or michelle obama was on tape for saying whitey. for half a second i go oh, my gosh, this is the whitey tape and i started watching it and i thought this is it, this is what they've got? we fought this before. >> i don't think anybody's used that word since george jefferson in the early 1980's.
